Another match day has come and gone with the 23rd round of the EPL being played out during the middle of the week, and we now look on to match day 24 in just another 48 hours.

The mid-week games saw some surprises as Everton shocked Manchester City with a 1-0 victory at Goodison Park thanks to a second-half strike from Darron Gibson, who became an instant hero for his old club Manchester United.

Sir Alex Ferguson's Red Devils won against a poor Stoke City side, even with 13 players on their roster injured, and were able to draw level at the top of the table.

Tottenham also was allowed to gain ground as a Gareth Bale brace led the way for a 3-1 victory over Wigan Athletic.

Chelsea and Arsenal both slumped to draws, and Swansea City could have beaten the Blues if their finishing had been better in the first half and a late Neil Taylor own goal in stoppage time had not allowed the London side to escape with a point.

Arsene Wenger's side likewise were poor. They finished with a 0-0 draw to Bolton at the Reebok.

The faltering of Chelsea allowed both Newcastle United and Liverpool to gain ground. The Magpies knocked off Blackburn Rovers for the second time in five matches. And the Reds beat Wolves away, as Andy Carroll got on the score sheet and Dirk Kuyt scored his 50th EPL goal.

Sunderland looked impressive, moving to eighth in the table just over a month after Martin O'Neil's arrival, taking down Norwich City 3-0 at the Stadium of Light.

Djibril Cisse debuted with a goal in his first 20 minutes back in England with QPR, but Rangers were unable to complete their victory over Aston Villa, as Alex McLeish inspired his team to come back from 0-2 down and take a point 2-2.

Lastly, Clint Dempsey scored his 16th goal of the season for Fulham. The American will be looking at a lot of interest in him come summer time if he keeps this up. The Cottagers drew 1-1.

This week we see the top clubs in some more interesting match ups. Manchester United travel to Stamford Bridge, and Tottenham head to Liverpool. Manchester City host Fulham, who were the first club to earn any points off of them in this campaign back in September of 2011.
